The Brunel Museum is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.
This scheduled ancient monument and international landmark tells the story of one of the world’s great engineering dynasties.
Paintings, models, prints and statues commemorate Isambard Kingdom Brunel's first and last projects: the oldest tunnel in the London Underground, and SS Great Eastern, the first modern ocean liner. The huge Neoclassical Grand Entrance Hall was the world’s first underground theatre – Brunel organised the inaugural concert party in 1827 – and has been restored as a gallery and venue for lectures, concerts, opera and plays, celebrating music and theatre as well as engineering.
